Founded in 1955, DFCC Bank is one of the oldest development banks in Asia, and celebrated 60 years of prosperity in October 2015. The Bank possesses a proud heritage of achievements, which includes financing new economic sectors in the country and being the wind beneath the wings of many trail-blazing entrepreneurs especially in their early and risky start-up stages. Today these sectors have become mainstream businesses that support the national economy in many ways.
In a landmark event in Sri Lanka’s banking and financial sector, DFCC Bank and its subsidiary, DFCC Vardhana Bank amalgamated to form DFCC Bank PLC, a fully-fledged Licensed Commercial Bank supervised by the Central Bank of Sri Lanka.
